    With all the food and pet products now coming from China, it is best to make sure you read labels at the grocery store and especially Walmart when buying food products.

    Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is located. It is important to read the bar code to track it's origin.



    How to read Bar Codes ... interesting!
    This is really interesting.
    GREAT WAY TO "BUY USA & CANADA� AND NOT FROM CHINA!!
    This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to you.



    The whole world is afraid of China-made "black hearted goods".

    Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China ?

    If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 690, 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN CHINA .

    471 is Made in Taiwan .

    This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public,
    therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves.

    Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products "MADE IN CHINA ",
    so they don't show from which country it is made.

    However, you may now refer to the barcode, remember if the first 3 digits are:

    690-692 ... then it is MADE IN CHINA .
    00 - 09 ... USA & CANADA
    30 - 37 ... FRANCE
    40 - 44 ... GERMANY
    47 ... Taiwan
    49 ... JAPAN
    50 ... UK

    BUY USA & CANADIAN MADE by watching
    for "0" at the beginning of the number.
    We need every boost we can get!

          "Made In" and "Product of" are two different things.

          You can buy all your parts from China, assemble your product in the US, and call it Made in the USA.

          You can buy some fish from China, re-process it, add a fancy sauce/cheese/noodles/etc. and call it Product of USA.
          I'm on "The List" and I love it!!
